Yale’s Center for Conservation and Preservation: Scientific Facilities in the Service of Collections

Thursday November 21, 3:30pm
Beinecke Rare Book & Manuscript Library Rooms 38/39

All are invited to the annual lecture hosted by the Preservation Department of the Yale University Library. The speaker is Aniko Bezur, Director of Scientific Research at Yale's Center for Conservation and Preservation. The event is sponsored by Jack '47 and Betsy O'Neill.

The first phase of realizing Yale’s Center for Conservation and Preservation was completed in Spring 2013 with the construction of its scientific research laboratories. This talk will introduce the scientific staff and facilities of the CCAP, showcase ongoing projects, and explore plans for harnessing the Center’s unique setting and academic context.

Aniko Bezur is director of scientific research at the Yale Center for Conservation and Preservation. She has a PhD in materials science and engineering from the University of Arizona. Prior to her current position, she was the Andrew W. Mellon research scientist for the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, and the Menil Collection (2008-2012); worked at the Art Institute of Chicago as associate conservation scientist; and served as a lecturer and assistant professor of conservation science in the Art Conservation Department at Buffalo State College.

A reception with refreshments will follow the lecture. All are welcome. For more information: roberta.pilette@yale.edu
